Jim Harbaugh takes notice of Seahawks suspensions

JimHarbaugh AP

Everyone has noticed that five Seahawks have been suspended since 2011 for violating the league’s policy against performance-enhancing drugs.

Everyone including 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.

On Tuesday, Harbaugh addressed the ongoing issue in a way that necessarily will increase tensions among the NFC West rivals who also are among the best teams in the NFL.

I’ve definitely noticed it,” Harbaugh said of the situation in Seattle, via Grant Cohn of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat.  “You don’t know what it is.  Even when people say what it is, you don’t know that that’s what it is.  I’ve heard this thrown out or that, but that’s usually the agent or the players themselves saying it’s, for example, Adderall.  But the NFL doesn’t release what it actually is, so you have no idea.  You’re taking somebody at their word that I don’t know if you can take them at their word, understanding the circumstances.”

In less diplomatic words, Harbaugh is basically saying that it’s not reasonable to assume a cheater isn’t lying.  And Harbaugh isn’t a fan of cheaters.

“It has no place in an athlete’s body,” Harbaugh said regarding the NFL’s list of banned substances.  “Play by the rules. You want to be above reproach, especially when you’re good, because you don’t want people to come back and say, ‘They’re winning because they’re cheating.’  That’s always going to be a knee-jerk reaction in my experience, since I was a little kid.  We want to be a above reproach in everything and do everything by the rules.  If you don’t, if you cheat to win then you’ve already lost, according to Bo Schembechler.  And Bo Schembechler is about next to the Word of God.  It’s not the Word of God, but it’s close.”

And that’s not a direct body slam of the way coach Pete Carroll handles his team, but it’s close.

Did we mention these teams get together Week Two on NBC?

    “Play by the rules.” he says.

    Then whines incessantly about a correct “By the rule” call in the super bowl. Ahem.. When the ball is in the air, and there is contact, but the ball is Uncatchable, there is NO CALL. Enjoy the runner up spot while you have it Coach Harbull.

    Bravo Jim! You are a Harbaugh. Both Dad and brother John are proud. Bo is looking down and smiling.

  4. elliottcovert says: Jun 11, 2013 4:53 PM

    It seems like a lot of what Harbaugh says is just incoherant jibberish. And I mean that in the best possible way (gobble gobble turkey).

  5. dprouse says: Jun 11, 2013 4:54 PM

    I’m sure Pete Carroll will be calling Harbaugh soon to ask, “What’s your deal?”

  6. folkcrusader says: Jun 11, 2013 4:54 PM

    Better then talking about that 42-13 beat down at the CLink.

    Love it. Let the rival keep growing.

  10. dezmick says: Jun 11, 2013 4:56 PM

    49ers should start selling t-shirts that say “You Positive Bro?”.

  11. butthatmakestoomuchsense says: Jun 11, 2013 4:56 PM

    Not sure why Harbaugh and others make this an issue. If they find something on the banned substances list in a player’s system, the player is suspended regardless of what it is.

    So what’s the problem?

    If you want to solve the Adderall issue, petition the NFL to take it off the banned substances list. You’d never hear the “Adderall Excuse” again.

  12. joecancun says: Jun 11, 2013 4:59 PM

    Maybe Mr Harbaugh should review the tape of the Vikings / 49ers game when he tried to cheat- err
    work the system by throwing a challenge flag when he didn’t have one to throw to stop the clock.

    Selective memory Jim.

  13. shotgunnoblitz says: Jun 11, 2013 5:01 PM

    Had any of the other coaches in the NFC west said that it would carry some weight. But this guy is the biggest sissy when it comes to calls not going his way that it just ends up being the long winded blusterings of a delusional mad man.

  16. finsguy says: Jun 11, 2013 5:02 PM

    Say what you want about him but there is no arguement that he is the second best coach named Harbaugh in the entire league.

  17. rpiotr01 says: Jun 11, 2013 5:03 PM

    Kudos for pointing out what no one else seems to want to – that the NFL doesn’t release the exact substance they were caught using, so player and agent are free to spin it as something sympathetic, like a vitamin or the new one, Adderall.

  18. dwoofer says: Jun 11, 2013 5:03 PM

    I hate the 49ers, but I do believe that when they play you, they play simply with their skill, and not because they are juiced up.

    I think he is addressing Sherman. That was a mistake. He has officially sealed the 49ers fate. DON’T THROW AT SHERMAN.

  21. ripster65 says: Jun 11, 2013 5:05 PM

    People can sure hate Jim H. but his rebuilding program amounted to the 2 weeks before last season began. You wish your coach could do that.

  22. truthfactory says: Jun 11, 2013 5:05 PM

    I wouldnt be surprised if 50% of his team (or any team) is on HGh

  23. eaglesw00t says: Jun 11, 2013 5:06 PM

    I agree with Jim. Not a 49ers fan, but there sure seem to be a lot of haters. Haters gonna hate I guess. If you don’t agree with Jim on this, you support cheating. It’s pretty simple

  24. joey49er says: Jun 11, 2013 5:07 PM

    SOOO funny how the seahawks were on drugs and still lost the division….niners are the best in the west….we own the division….

  25. baddegg says: Jun 11, 2013 5:07 PM

    Would have been fewer violations if they had thought of the “leaking cup” defense earlier…

  26. jwil007 says: Jun 11, 2013 5:08 PM

    Still aint better than Pitt vs Bmore or Dallas vs NYG….keep tryin though both teams are definitely good but the matchup hasn’t ascended to the above mentioned rival games….

    42-13. Jim’s comments are nothing more than a poor excuse. More of the same coming in week 2.

  33. hrmlss says: Jun 11, 2013 5:15 PM

    He’s sanctimonious ass.

  34. Iknoweverything says: Jun 11, 2013 5:16 PM

    Whiner Harbaugh is already throwing out excuses. Hilarious.

    He knows Pete is a better coach.
    Wilson is a better QB
    Harvin is a better WR than anyone on the niner roster.
    Better CBs
    Better DL
    Better OL
    Better RB
    Better fans.
    He HAS to start throwing out excuses cause the SAeahawks are clearly a superior team all around. How else will he be able to explain away hoe seattle will dominate all the way to a Super Bowl title this year..

    Stay classy SF FortyWHiners

  35. allidoiswin55 says: Jun 11, 2013 5:16 PM

    Of the 5 suspensions, Barbe tested positive for a Ped, BEFORE joining the Seahawks and serves his suspension once signed… He never played a single down…

    Another player John Moffit who tested positive for Peds, had a doctor’s prescription for Adderall that wasn’t sent into the league. If u he’s guilty of anything it’s stupidity for not following through all protocols.

    So this epidemic of players suspended from Seattle really is not even nearly as big of a deal as the media has tried to portray. NOT ONLY DOES the Redskins have MOOOOOOORE PLAYERS SUSPENSDED THROUGH THIS SAME PERIOD OF TIME..

    Nearly half the teams in the league sit around 3 players.. Say what you want the above mentioned are a part of those five and take away ignorance you can hardly blame the Seahawks for those 2. Considering the pre seahawks period he tested positive and the prescription..

    Please stop spreading ignorance, niners are an good team, so are the Hawks.

    Anyone saying differently doesn’t know football. Stop saying stupid sh*t

  36. hor2012 says: Jun 11, 2013 5:16 PM

    I wouldn’t talk if I was Jim. It’s possible that niner’s could get caught up as well

    Karma being karma, Mr. Harbaugh will soon be trying to explain away why one or more of his boys are being suspended.

    Did a Seacawk fan really bring up the Week 16 game?

    What a hallmark of a pathetic franchise bereft of any significance to think one win in four games means something to your division rival. It is going to be hilarious come your teams Mt.Rushmore time hahahahaha. Even more so when your PEDefense falls back down to Earth and you start rooting for other teams again.

  42. gdeli says: Jun 11, 2013 5:22 PM

    Who cares. Just play football in week 2. Acting like dysfunctional kids. If pete c has a problem in seattle then maybe he runs his team like mike tice did with the vikes. He also left usc then the ncaa hammered usc.

    That’s why they are going broke and get underused I guess huh, maybe they should cheat like the seahawks, start taking out the competition like FedEx who I use most of the time anyway, there was a postman down here in the bay area got caught stealing mail and keeping it in a storage unit, so that’s the type of Bussiness you want to attach the great Seahawks to huh?
    Good luck, Niners are not invincible but they don’t dope either!! Moving on….

    Yeah, your whole team is better than the niners!
    Yeah your coach is the best there is, yeah your QB is better, yeah your running back is better
    Yeah your cornerbacks are better… Blaw blaw blaw,
    So when they get crushed your excuses will be?? Oh, maybe uh just maybe they aren’t who we thought they were!!!

    Wow questforthesixth…really missed the Lance Armstrong joke there didn’t he?

    Also if anyone on planet Earth thinks that at least half of these players aren’t taking HGH then you are all crazy. They don’t test for it and a human being isn’t supposed to be that big and move that fast.

    If they did a surprise test for HGH tomorrow there wouldn’t be any games the first 4 weeks of the season.

    harbough better focus on his qb running when he has only 10 yards to go and some downs to work with to win the sb and have the qb not rely so much on 1 receiver. that’s it. boy, that was very frustrating to watch it fall apart at the end. What a shame the ravens won. uh

    Hey Jim, have seen the Lombardi Trophy lately? I’m sure your brother John would love to show it to you, AGAIN! LOSER!

  64. nineroutsider says: Jun 11, 2013 5:57 PM

    I’d prefer it if he just kept his mouth shut as no team can say that they don’t have any juicers…in any sport! Players will juice because it pays to juice – you’ll get a bigger contract and teams benefit from it because fans like production…”chicks dig the long ball” as they say in baseball.

    Its obvious that Jim was feeling a little chippy today and went for the opportunity to take a shot at the Hawks. Its fine but now you open the door for your players to run their mouths. I hate that male soap opera crap, but my wife says I don’t have any feelings.

    I’d prefer them to focus on getting better and let the Hawks worry about themselves and their various suspensions – they speak for themselves, no need to for Harbaugh to address them. Plus, like I said before, teams really can’t control what the players decide to take. It can happen to any team, but it is kind of funny that it so happens that our division rivals seem to have a strong proclivity for the sauce…

Not hard to get tickets in that dump when they practically give them away. Keep holding onto the past, because starting this year you will go back to below the hawks where you belong. Niners have done NOTHING since hawks came to that division.

  74. coachglove says: Jun 11, 2013 6:18 PM

    There are many teams that don’t even have that…let’s look at one relevant to this thread: the Seahawks. There is no logical construct under which you can argue 5 super bowl victories (or 1 for that matter), won at any period in time, do not show a superior franchise history when compared to any team that has never accomplished the only objective that matters in the NFL. When also weighed against the most recent NFC Championship, one could not logically argue the Seahawks were superior in the most recent NFL season, much less in their respective franchise histories.

    That won’t stop people from making specious and asenine arguments based on emotion, but I’m not sure how one could possibly say the niners will be watching success on the history channel given their recent run of success (especially given the narrow Super Bowl loss).

    I would be one thing to bash say, the Cowboys, for not having even appeared in one since the 90′s, but to bash the niners for historic success is simply ignorant.

    Lest ye be tempted to attack the messenger for bias…I LOATHE the 49ers.

    Seahawk’s and 49ers fans that comment here are pathetic. The game is played on the field. Nothing that is said here within these pissing matches is even worth reading. Neither team won the Super Bowl, regardless of how close either came. When the season is over, we’ll know who was better. All this smack talking is weak. Especially the tired loss late in the season @ Seattle. New year, a game last year is completely meaningless. Keep puffing your chests out there spouting garbage. Teams are equal, only difference is in the coaching. Whine this, whine that. They asked a question and he answered. Both of these guys complain from time to time. Not a big deal, all coaches do. To get yourselves all riled up over nothing is a joke. I guarantee no Seahawk or 49er is reading any of your, or my drivel. Good luck, may the better team win.

    Coachglove,

    The hawks have done more in the last 13 years than the niners have! In case you’ve forgotten we also lost a SB too so not much of an argument there pal. Two good years for the niners in the last 15 or so and all the sudden everybody jumps on their bandwagon like a bitch in heat. We will see when they come back down to earth this year.

    My grammar is just fine in that sentence. IF you actually knew what you’re talking about, and ran a grammar check, you would see the sentence checks out just fine moron.

    Second of all, everybody else started saying Hawks have done nothing in their franchise history, so I’m saying if they’ve done nothing SF has done nothing. We’ve done more in that division than SF is what I’m saying. Two good years, and all of the sudden they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. We will see next year, when another 42-13 happens to them again, and having Kap look like a deer in the headlights again LOL

    I am a Seahawks fan but when the Niners were in the Superbowl I was cheering for the Niners. Obviously, I hope that the situation is reversed this year but I love this newly relevant rivalry with the Niners and will always cheer for the team that comes out of the division.

  86. ketch20too says: Jun 11, 2013 6:39 PM

    ripster..Jim inherited a talent laden team plagued by horrible coaches who cultivated under achievement. He got good players to play like they should have…for that he gets credit…but he didn’t build it..someone else built that

    You must be a mental midget. It’s better to have lombardi’s the past than to have no lombardi’s at all. You may be too dumb to understand that.

    BTW, the only shot you had at a lombardi was when a niner protege got you there. How does it feel like to be on our charity?

  88. harbaughownspete says: Jun 11, 2013 6:40 PM

    Harbaugh is 3-1 vs the Cheathawks with Division Titles in every year he has been in the NFL over Cheat Carroll… They beat a Team the Hawks couldnt beat in the Playoffs(Falcons) int he same bulding Pete and the Cyheaters choke away a PLayoff lead lol….. Now wonder they keep bringing up One Meaningless game after being swept by the 9ers the year before and being 0-3 against them… Harbaugh even owned Carroll in college when Pete was cheating then and had better athletes then Jim… Harbaugh has proven to be the better coach and i know u Seahawk hater would never let a simply thing like facts interupt your Hate but the facts still remians … 2 Division titles…2 NFC championship Games.// One NFC championship Title and a Super Bowl appearance.. in 2 freaking years… Seahawks fans a really jealous deep down inside even the biggest hater can see Jim had a better Resume then Pete

  89. nbarber2013 says: Jun 11, 2013 6:48 PM

    On your charity? You’re an idiot. Second of all I said was you guys HANG ONTO THE PAST BECAUSE THAT’S ALL YOU GOT! How many lombardi’s since seattle entered that division? Oh yeah that’s right 0. This is about Seattle vs SF rivalry, but you must be too much of a mental midget to understand that.

    Also ketch20too:

    That’s a great point about Jimbo he inherited that team for the most most part. Pete built that team from the ground up in only 3 years! Bring up college and bring up their two years in the pros, and yes Jim has Pete, BUT his team was solid and waiting for him while Seattle was rebuilding. Pretty sure we saw what Seattle will be doing to them for years to come.

    All NFC West teams have lost Super bowls since 2000, so no one is better at recent success. And Rams are only team with a win. And lost only 1 division game last year so come to your on conclusion on those facts. And yes I’m a Ram Homer.

    nbarber2013-

    Huge 49er fan and season ticket holder. That’s why I said what I said. Both teams fans bases act like they have done anything over the past decade. I remember well the garbage years we had from 2002-2010. I watched them all, bad and worse. Losing a Super Bowl means you lost just like 30 other teams. No grab bag for that prize. Talk all you want after game two, but it’s a new year, nothing that happened last year matters. As much pleasure as you take from that game last year in Seattle, unfortunately it means nada. Could very well happen again, but far from a certainty. Puff that chest bro. All teams are 0-0 right now. Past has passed.

  93. cmeyer49er says: Jun 11, 2013 7:04 PM

    Really, who gives a @#$% about this “rivalry” with the Seahawks? The NFC West has been an abomination since Tagliabue blew it up during the 2002 realignment.

    I’ve been a Niner fan and ticketholder most of my life, and I still couldn’t care less about the Cardinals (traditionally NFC East occasional opponents) and the Seahawks (traditionally AFC West preseason opponents) as division rivals.

    The NFL tried to stuff an artificially-created Cardinal -Niner rivalry down our throats in the mid-2000s to a collective yawn. Enough.

    When Harbaugh and Carroll are long gone, nobody (at least in SF) will be paying any special attention to Niners-Seahawks. It just ain’t natural.

    The fact that the Rams are in St. Louis (thus removing the NoCal – SoCal rivalry) only adds to my apathy regarding the current NFC West.

    Give me LA, ATL and NO any day over STL, SEA and AZ.

    Did not know that they NFL started only in 2002. If you don’t want to talk history fine. Then why bring up only the last 10 years. Oh right, that’s because the seacraps have been terrible before then.

    If you don’t want to deal with tradition and history, I can say that the last season, the seacraps were inferior to the niners when it was all said and done.

    Again, rivalry is of equals, like niners-cowboys or pittsburgh. We don’t deal with non-equals.

    This is too easy and boring. Much more fun to trash talk with the cowgirls.

  96. hendeeze says: Jun 11, 2013 7:39 PM

    Seahawk fans are quite hilarious.

    Your team gets caught cheating at least 6x. And you call the coach of your biggest rival scared? How does that even make any sense?

    “It has no place in an athlete’s body…Play by the rules. You want to be above reproach, especially when you’re good, because you don’t want people to come back and say, ‘They’re winning because they’re cheating.’”

    It’s a nice throw down in the sense that it was in reference to their rival Seahawks but, it sounds like he’s giving a stern warning directly to his own players.

    Surely he must suspect/believe that there are many players across the league who are using banned substances–they’re just not getting/haven’t been caught.

  100. pmars64 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:22 PM

    I’m not a fan of either team, but lets remember that Harbaugh inherited a talented team already that just needed a good coach while Carroll had to start almost from scratch. The job Carroll’s done is remarkable and deserves more praise than Harbaugh’s.

  101. orivar says: Jun 11, 2013 8:29 PM

    And here’s another team that Jim has started a war with, while they’re technically already rivals due to the division, it’s still more fun to say this.

    I feel like making a tree diagram that linking Jim to teams that don’t like him.

In that same period what does Seattle have? WHAT has Seattle done in that same period of time? Literally nothing.

    Dear Seahawks fans:

    A quick question for you guys. Most of us think that the reason so many Seahawks players have gotten busted for substance issues is that they aren’t very honest. But you respond by saying that players everywhere do it and it’s just been that the Seahawks players have been the ones who have been caught. Wouldn’t that argument mean that they’re no more dishonest than anyone else but that they’re not as smart as everyone else (because they keep getting caught)?

    Which is it? Are they dishonest or dumb? It has to be either one or the other, right?

  107. larrydavid7000 says: Jun 11, 2013 10:06 PM

    Here we go again the seagull fans talking about nothing. Try win a SB first and then the big boys will let you a the table of champions. Until then shut up you are nothing but a fan base that roots for an EMPTY TROPHY CASE FRANCHISE.!!!!!! Your so pathetic that the only and silly thing you have going for you is this dumb 12 man crap. o boy that’s a winner. Also not a 49ers fan either. Hint my team has won at least 3 SB. So I know what a Champion looks like. !!!!!!!!!!

Oops.

  110. quickdraw85 says: Jun 12, 2013 10:00 AM

    I say that we let players put whatever substance they want in their bodies. At least let the team pick 5 or 6 players who are allowed to inject, eat or smoke whatever substance makes them a game changer. Goedell is all about the league making more money (London) haha. Why not reverse the trend of ex-NFL players becoming wrestlers and let the roided out guys join a team.

  111. dirtydrew says: Jun 12, 2013 11:12 AM

    Fans can make all the excuses they want, but the Seahawks have cornered the market on PED and adderall suspensions. This is adding to the difficulty of competing in the NFL. They are correctly perceived as cheaters.

    I was referring to the old NFC West alignment and the LA Rams. They should’ve stayed in LA – having one half of a nearly 50-year rivalry move two timezones away to play in an antiseptic dome just killed the whole thing.

    The seahawks get slammed about peds while the redskins walk free of scrutiny. Hmm I wonfer why. Ohh yeah there on the beloved east coast. And other fans hate seattle because we have have the BEST fans. Same can be said about multiple other teams but u know wat.. Let em talk they can have an excuse as to why their teams lohe hawks.. so everyone wins. Championship for us,, excuses for you. In the words of the the best player in the nfl.. GO HAWKS!!

    Didn’t the 49ers win the NFC Championship THIS year? Where was Seattle during that game?

    Better to watch the History Channel than Comedy Central, which is more fitting for the ineptitude of the Seahawks.
